Event description

Description

Join Thorntree Press for an evening with Kevin A. Patterson, author of the new book Love's Not Color Blind: Race and Representation in Polyamorous and Other Alternative Communities.

Polyamorous people and communities can appear, at first glance, to be very open and welcoming. In many case, they don't take the time to get introspective about why they may come across as unfriendly or inaccessible to people of color. Love's Not Color Blind is a book about what we can do to change that landscape. This book-signing event comes bundled with a workshop on intersectional polyamory + a personally-driven discussion/Q&A on how race can impact polyamory on both individual and community levels.

Doors at 6:45
Reading, Q&A and discussion 7:30–9
Signing 9–9:30

Light snacks will be provided.

Event accessibility: The venue is the Canfor room at the YWCA Hotel Vancouver (https://ywcavan.org/hotel) and is wheelchair accessible. The hotel is 1.5 blocks from the Stadium Skytrain station (west entrance). There is paid street parking nearby, and numerous parking garages (there is an EasyPark at Pender and Beatty). Scents may have been worn by previous users of the space. We ask that event guests avoid wearing scents.

We acknowledge that this event will be taking place on the traditional and ancestral lands of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh).
